Published by Smith & Kraus

"Avoid the traps of bad acting and awaken to what makes performing exciting, joyous, and breathtakingly real ... Reclaim your unique voice and become a true actor for life!"

Meisner for Teens will help teen actors to free themselves from self-consciousness and the pressures of performance to achieve truth on the stage and in life

Larry Silverberg, the author who introduced the Meisner Technique to actors through his acclaimed four-volume workbook series, has now written a Meisner guidebook for young actors

A perfect text for high school drama teachers, Silverberg provides clear and easy to understand instruction to guide young actors toward simple, meaningful, authentic and passionately alive ways of working

In this workbook and acting journal wrapped in one, students keep a journal in which they define their desires and refine their skills of observation - learning to listen carefully to other people and pay keener attention to their own responses

Through dialogue work in pairs, young actors learn to engage immediately and directly with their partners

Meisner for Teens includes:

- Individual and group exercises
- Journal prompts
- Writing, listening, and observing assignments
- Thoughtful, inspiring quotes throughout
- Perfect material to incorporate into High School Drama classes
- Excellent text for Introduction to Acting college-level courses
- Relates the craft of acting to the truths of life
